Democrats once dominated the Volunteer State’s political landscape – both senators, the governor, the General Assembly and most of the congressional delegation. Now, Republicans control most every nook and crevice of government and Democrats are trying to climb out of the ditch.

Everything you ever (didn’t) want to know about Knox County politics.
In about a week, those who didn’t take advantage of early voting will cast their ballots in local and state general elections.
